Joining countless concerts, arts events, political debates and plays, this year's CommUNITY Rainbow Run has moved online, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The fourth annual benefit for the OnePulse Foundation is still a go, at least, happening in September virtually.

Runners can take on the 4.9K miles of the race – a number that is a tribute to the 49 who lost their lives in the Pulse Nightclub shooting – at the time (and place) of their choosing.

And on the morning of Sept. 12 at 8 a.m., onePULSE Foundation will air a pre-taped video of the Orlando race route on its Facebook and YouTube pages.

“Please know we do not make these decisions lightly — we will always prioritize the health and safety of the public, the Pulse community, and our employees,” said onePULSE Foundation CEO Barbara Poma in a press release.

The registration fee is $49. More information on registration and logistics can be found here.
